The good folks over at CAS Mix Up asked that we use acrylic paint and offered several technique videos. I watched the one on Stamping with Acrylics. It was 1:30 long so was right up my alley, that should tell you the length of my attention span. The idea is to brush the paint on a smooth flat surface to a thin wet coat. I used white paint on my glass mat with a 1″ paint brush. Then stamped like it was an ink pad. The transfer was very sharp and clear on the black cs. Once dry I colored in with water color brush and the white paint tinted with pink re-inker. Leaves and stalks were shaded with colored pencil. With the pink paint I spread it thin and then used that to stamp my sentiment. Used a fine black marker to recreate the outline of flower petals. Focal piece is dry embossed along all edges with a thin score line and the back has heavy cs cut to fit inside the score lines for a slight pop up. PP strip was attached to white cs base and then the focal image attached.
This is defiantly something I will do again. Very cool effect and not as messy as I though it would be. Sad the photo looks so purple because the finished piece is more in the pink family.
